Anyone have any experience with the affect, if any, on an implant?

No experience myself, but I am 100% confident that your radiologist will say without reservation that radiation treatment will have no effect whatsoever on the implant.

Radiation is supposed to kill off cancer cells (which, by their nature, are more susceptible to radiation than normal cells) and leave the other living cells much less affected. Radiation (at the levels used in therapy) has almost no ability to affect non-living materials.

I believe there may be some chance of ionizing induced polymerization of the implant material. I would contact Coloplast and ask them.
